Volpin Props Makes a Horizon Zero Dawn Shadow Sharpshot Bow
We’ve seen Kamui Cosplay’s take on making a Horizon Zero Dawn Sharpshot Bow, and now it’s time to look at Volpin Props’ process. They actually made a variant of the weapon, the Shadow Sharpshot Bow. Harrison Krix of Volpin modeled the prop himself with Autodesk Fusion 360 (he learned how to use this program through Lars Christensen’s YouTube tutorials) and after 3D printing, Krix “molded and cast in urethane with steel cores for rigidity.” You can see the number of pieces he had to assemble in a photo below.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
